Pickleball Ontario, on behalf of Pickleball Canada, is nearing completion of two coaching streams for National Coaching Certification Program (“NCCP”) approval. These programs are Community Initiation (focused on recreational players fairly new to the sport) and Introduction to Competition (for players wanting to develop their competitive skills). In support of the coaching programs, the pickleball Long Term Player Development (“LTPD”) model was also developed. Since Pickleball Canada is not yet recognized by the Coaching Association of Canada, PCO needs to partner up with an already registered National Sport Organization to continue on with the NCCP application. Talks are currently underway in that regard. Once we gain NCCP approval, we will start rolling out training in a systematic manner across Canada. As soon as the NCCP is become available, Pickleball NB will be giving clinics across the province.
If you are interested in a clinic in your area, whether it is beginner, intermediate or more advanced, we have a number of ways in which we can support you.
Contact Jean-Yves Duguay, our Director of Coaching, if you would like to hold a clinic in your area and you would like support. Please include information on where you are located and the type of clinic you are looking to hold. We look forward to supporting skills growth for the pickleball players of New Brunswick.
